Customer Review

on September 13, 2012
i am a steady runner who runs all year round, and does 3-4 half marathons a year. i wanted an inexpensive, no-frills watch to chart my distance, time, and pace. nothing more. i dont need to share my run stats with 5 billion people on fb, monitor my heart rate, or store computer records of my last 1,000 runs. i'm sure many people are in the same situation, as many gps devices on the simple side have been released in the past few months. this new balance met my needs well, is attractive, comfortable, and affordable. but despite being fairly tech savvy, i have yet to fully understand the programming functionality of the watch. the instructions are not particularly clear, and it has been frustrating at times. i eventually was able to program the basic functions i am looking for, but i am not yet utilizing its full capacity. the only operating issue i am having is for some reason, the gps signal takes .1-.2 miles after it says the gps is locked in before my distance starts to accumulate. this is fairly routine. i have checked my return distance on out-and-back runs to verify this. i simply add it on to my final distance. otherwise, this gps device is highly reccomended.
